Have you ever grown African Violets? Then you know the flower colours can be wonderful don't you? However, do you know how to make those bloom colours almost fluorescent? NO???!!! Well let me tell you a little secret of mine.
To make the flower colours intensify the plant needs extra calcium. Now....... this can be given easily by watering the AF's with the tepid water that you have just boiled those breakfast eggs in!! Enough calcium leaches out of the eggshells to make all the difference to these lovely house plants. Try it and see for yourself!!!
